Toot Your Own Horn

When I read CAS-ual Fridays new challenge Toot Your Own Horn, design a card inspired by your blog header, I was excited because it's such a clever challenge and I immediately came up with two card design ideas.  Well, then reality set in and I couldn't get my ideas to look good on paper...I hate when that happens.

But have no fear I did come up with a design that I'm pretty pleased with.
P1120133
My header is randomly scattered ink pads that I took a picture of, so I used a bunch of similar colours on my card and see how the ink pads are not quite square, I decided to use PTI's Vintage Label stamp to mimic that shape.

I have another idea brewing for this challenge so I hope it'll work out in another card design.

I'm also entering this in Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments, I truly appreciate them!
